Tito and Rampage appeared on ESPN for Bellator, and they goofed up by calling them UFC stars

Tito and Rampage appeared on ESPN for Bellator, and they goofed up by calling them UFC stars

Tito Ortiz and Rampage Jackson are set to 'takeover' ESPN this week with a number of appearances on the variety of shows the channel has to offer. Now that FOX Sports 1 is the home of UFC (and natural rivals of ESPN), it would be senseless for ESPN to promote a product that is exclusive to their competitor's platform. To combat this, ESPN has decided to go with Bellator and their offering of Tito Ortiz and Rampage Jackson which will be going down in a PPV event later this year.

Got to admit, it's pretty damn clever. However what wasn't clever is the fact that ESPN referred to Tito Ortiz and Rampage Jackson as 'UFC Stars' instead of Bellator or TNA stars. Someone in the ESPN office is getting reprimanded for this one. Props to Reddit for the find.

Umm.... Bellator used to be on ESPN Deportes so...

I think this helps sell PPVs because the average Joe doesn't know that the PPV is not the UFC.

That's because ESPN thinks MMA is the same thing as UFC.

In studio he said he never let a single fan down. That was a good one, Tito.
